Sony Music Publishing has acquired international rights to the Famous Music catalog from Universal Music Group, to fully take control of the copyrights it acquired from Viacom. BMG Music Publishing, acquired by Universal, held administration rights to the Famous catalog outside the United States and certain Asian territories until now.
